Why The Matrix Leader? Leading and managing in complex organisations, such a matrix or a large global organisation, can be frustrating at the best of times. There’s no need to sugarcoat the fact that such environments aren’t always the easiest in which to succeed. Dual reporting lines that have competing interests, dealing with silo’s and wading through politics that would sometimes make the most hardened politician break down, are all points of frustration for matrix and global leaders.
The good news is that there are those who do succeed, and sometimes thrive, in such settings and this program explores key elements of their formula for success.
What is covered in The Matrix Leader? In this course, participants will:
Understand what sets a matrix structure aside from simple organisation structures, and the challenges that come with a matrix
Identify the Proactive Matrix Leadership behaviours that improve leadership performance in a matrix
Develop personal resilience and learn how to lead with resilience.
Create a personal plan for implementing Proactive Matrix Leadership behaviours
Understand the role and importance of personal influence in Matrix relationships
